Lovecraft. The SpectreVision (Mandy) production stars Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, Tommy Chong and Elliot Knight and Julian Hilliard.

Plot:

This is a story of cosmic terror about The Gardners, a family who moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. The mysterious aerolite seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly colour. To their horror, the Gardner family discover that this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches… including them.

Production:

SpectreVision partner Daniel Noah has said: “Lovecraft is the dark father of modern horror, and we have been searching for an adaptation that captures the true scope of his cosmic dread for years. Richard Stanley – a wizard in his own right – will at long last bring Lovecraft’s humbling power to the screen unfiltered.”

The movie is in pre-production with shooting planned for February 2019.
